SD Card Data Recovery

You’ve likely seen or used an SD card before for a number of different devices. Small, compact and easy-to-use, an SD card is a memory-saving storage unit that clicks into a digital camera, laptop, computer and other devices, making it simple to access your saved files or photos. Unfortunately, despite their convenience factor, SD cards are not immune to damage.

The damage on an SD card may present in a variety of different ways. Even if your SD card appears to be functional from the outside, you may experience an issue which has to do with its internal functionality.SD Card Data Recovery Philadelphia King of Prussia Springfield Camden NJ sd card data recovery SD Card Data Recovery SD Card Data Recovery NYC 300x200

SD failure may occur with regard to:

-“Error” report when card is inserted in device

-Device failure to recognize card

-Memory failure

-Missing or lost data

-Corrupt data storage

-Accidental deletion

-Outer damage, such as water damage, heat damage or another source

-Other problems

Your card may also be repeatedly rejected by your device when you try to insert it into its slot.

Before consigning yourself to a problem with your card, perform a perfunctory assessment to check for a true issue. Wipe your card with a soft, clean cloth to ensure that it is clean and free of debris. Read the directions for your device or check the small image next to the SD slot to ensure that you are inserting the card in the right direction. Once you have determined that there is a true problem, it is best to contact a professional as soon as possible to minimize potential loss.

As with any other storage apparatus, it is always our recommendation to save your data in multiple places and/or on multiple devices, to ensure that in the case of device failure, you have easy access to your important information in another safe place.

Getting to Know SD Cards

The Secure Digital, or SD, memory card was developed in 1999 by a joint effort from several technology companies: Panasonic, Toshiba and SanDisk. They were an improvement over the existing memory standard at the time, which was the MMC, or MultiMedia Card. These three companies co-founded a specific LLC with regard to SD cards, and together, own the intellectual property rights for the concept.

SD cards are available in four card types and three card sizes. Notably, they were created with an asymmetrical shape, making it easy to distinguish between the right and wrong way to insert a card into a device. Their small footprint was carefully designed to make the memory unit ideal for portability and convenience. Additionally, the electrical contacts, which preserve the data inside the device, are recessed beneath the surface of the card, protecting them from users’ fingers.

While SD cards are generally reliable and self-protecting, they do experience failure.
